Green Manufacturing And Recycled Shutters In Minneapolis We provide window treatments that are recyclable or contain some recycled content in them because we believe in sustainable shutter products. Not only are Polywood® shutters a fully recyclable shutter, but they are also made of up to 20% recycled Polywood material. We’re the only shutter company in Minneapolis or even America that does that. Sunburst supports green products, designs, and buildings. We show our commitment by reusing our materials whenever possible. We recycle water used to cool parts when they’re coming out of ovens. We reuse packaging supplies. We reuse shutter scraps – or regrind them and turn them into new shutters. We end up recycling hundreds of tons of materials every year. When we package our window treatments to be transported to your residence for installation, we put reusable corner pieces on the sides of the louvers and use as little cardboard as possible to box up the shutters. Non-Toxic Paint Finish For Shutters Our plantation shutters are coated with patented paints that are environmentally safe – and are even lower than the normal volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions allowed. During our manufacturing method, none of our paints give off fumes. We mean it when we say our paints are safe. Polywood Shutters do not emit dangerous gasses – so you and your household can breathe easily and savor your window treatments. The Only Shutter Recycling Program in Minneapolis, MN If you ever want to switch your window treatment styles, we offer a shutter recycling program in Minneapolis to keep Polywood shutters out of landfills. You simply have to take down the shutters yourself, and call our store manager, George, at 952-856-8130 to set up a pick-up. We will take your shutters and reuse some part of them in future Polywood shutters. This is the case for Polywood shutters only—we don’t offer recycling for other shutter brands. With this program, there’s no cost to you for recycling Polywood shutters. And, together, we’re assisting in keeping the environment green in Minneapolis.
